Polaris-nominated artist Tanika Charles is making her return to the capital on November 23rd at the National Arts Centre, and we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the sold-out show.
Her acclaimed 2016 album Soul Run is heavy-hitting and chalk full of classic soul/R&B influences that transcend clichés. Charles digs deep into lived experiences and channels raw emotion into songs that possess an undeniable charm. Following in the footsteps of impactful musicians like Sharon Jones and Mavis Staples, the Edmonton native takes an honest approach to writing music that not only touches on heartbreak and vulnerability, but also resiliency and the spirit of overcoming adversity.
Charles and her band create infectious rhythms and hooks, reeling in listeners with unbridled instrumentation and vocal prowess. This is not only apparent on her recordings, but even to a greater degree in a live atmosphere. This isn’t a show to miss. For more information on the event on November 23rd, check out the NAC website here.
